A Fun & Easy Way to Learn How to Pronounce IKEA Product Names

I've always liked how IKEA has continued using Swedish names for all their products, even after blowing up into an international brand available the world over. Of course, that doesn't mean I necessarily know how to pronounce all the product names strewn throughout their stores and in their catalogs.

But thanks to IKEA På Svenska, a click-to-listen site (IKEA In Swedish), I may soon be inquiring about the ISFJORDEN with correct pronunciation next time I'm wandering the store's cavernous maze...

My favorite name/word pronunciation I've learned thanks to IKEA In Swedish, happens also be one of my favorite offerings at IKEA: their meatballs! Köttbullar, or Swedish meatballs, is apparently pronounced "SHUT-boo-lahr", with "SHUT" pronounced as when saying "Shut the door". Fascinating!
